A highly effective IPL device, BroadBand Light (BBL) can minimize the effects of the natural aging process, sun damage and an active, outdoor lifestyle.


What is BBL?

BBL is a powerful IPL technology that is capable of treating a number of skin conditions that develop due to sun damage and the natural aging process. It harnesses the power of pulsed light to gently heat the upper layers of your skin. Your body responds by producing fresh collagen – ultimately revealing a smooth, vibrant and youthful complexion. In addition, the device’s photothermal energy can remove vessels that are causing redness and irregular pigmentation.

The benefits

BBL can be used on any area of the body, though the most common treatment locations are the face, neck, hands, décolletage and shoulders. The procedure has the power to correct:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots and sun spots
  • Facial veins
  • And more

Recovery

There is virtually no downtime associated with BBL treatments. You will be free to return to work and your normal daily activities right away. However, you may notice flushing or redness for several hours. If pigmentation was treated, it may become temporarily darker before peeling off in about two weeks.

FAQ BBL

How much does BBL cost?

Nationwide, the average IPL treatment can cost between $700 and $1,200, depending on the technology used, your city, and the size of the target area.

Am I a candidate?

BBL tends to be safe and effective for most patients who want to improve the quality of their skin while minimizing wrinkles and pigmentation issues. However, if your skin is tanned, you will need to wait for it to fade before undergoing treatment.
